Summary
Yenne, novelist and historical author provides what is said to be the first history of Adolph Hitler's SS and its leader, Heinrich Himmler, to concentrate on the mystical and cult elements of the unusual and dreaded Nazi organization. The author follows Himmler as he rose through the ranks to his leadership of the SS in 1930 and his increasing power in the Third Reich in the 1940s. The author points out that while Himmler's dedication to the occult and a variety of oddball theories and beliefs would have been considered ludicrous, they were used as justification for Hitler's Final Solution.
